I thought it was only so many players of colour with two as black africans. I don't think there is an Asian quota.

Morkel was a great bowler but I wonder if he will be remembered as someone who never quite kicked on. He didn't seem to be a match winner game in game out. Too bad Zimbabwe couldn't recruit him and slot him into the lineup.

Does anyone know how Surrey TV works? I want to watch the highlights of yesterdays game but cant seem to get the media player to do anything.

You look at every side south Africa put out, you have two blacks, two Asians and a handful of whites.

When ever Maharaj is not picked, Shamsi comes in. Shaun Von Berg had far superior FC stats going into that test series, but they chose Shamsi to get their quota percentage of Asian players up.

You then have Bavuma and Rabada as the black cricketers and Philander as the coloured. I guess they included another Asian heriatged player to make up the other coloured cricketer. I dunno, but all this chat of skin colour is wrong. You pick the best possible side.

Wiaan Mulder should be in every single South African line up. The kid bowls rockets and bats like a monster. I'm telling you he's the next best thing in South African Cricket. Markhram is the future skipper in years to come.
When in doubt, listen to Oasis chaps....

Watch out for Rassie Van Der Dussen.
